When and Where Can You File for Divorce in Missouri?
You must live in Missouri for at least 90 days before you may file for divorce, and you can file your divorce petition in the county where either spouse lives. You must then wait at least 30 days after filing the petition before the court will grant a judgment of dissolution.
Missouri is a no-fault divorce state, which means that for the court to hear the case, the person filing the petition must only show (usually by stating such in the petition) that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
